Crockpot Quick and Easy Vaguely Asian Honey Tomato Chicken Thighs
Prep time
Total time
This slow cooker recipe comes together in 5 minutes and tastes incredibly delicious. It has the sweet and vaguely Asian flavors kids and grown ups love.
Serves: Serves 6-8
  • ½ cup of ketchup
  • ½ cup of soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • ¼ cup of honey
  • ¼ cup of sesame oil
  • ¼ cup of cider wine vinegar
  • Optional: 1 cup of diced red and yellow peppers (left out because of my picky eaters but would be delicious and colorful)
  1. Brown the chicken thighs in the slow cooker if you have a multi-function slow cooker with a splash of olive oil and the garlic cloves. If you have a simple slow cooker, brown them in a large frying pan and transfer to the slow cooker, scraping up as much of the browned bits as possible.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the ketchup, soy sauce, cider vinegar, honey, and sesame oil.
  3. Pour the sauce on top of the browned chicken thighs. Mix to coat with a wooden spoon. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours.
  4. Thirty minutes before the end of cooking time, check the amount of sauce. If it looks a little too dry for your taste, add ½ cup of water and mix well.
  5. Serve with basmati rice.
  6. Optional: add red and yellow peppers diced to cook.
